Navy Radar Tech Refresh Contract Includes Acromag
Acromag’s FPGA programmed boards are specified in the Navy’s contract to Raytheon for tech refresh kits in support of AN/SPS-73(V) surface-search shipboard radar.
Wixom, MI: The Navy has announced their intention to award a contract to Raytheon for AN/SPS-73 OJ-727(V) tech refresh kits in support of AN/SPS-73(V) surface-search shipboard radar. The mid-December 2014 contract specifies Acromag’s time tested high-performance FPGA modules that are well suited for COTS projects.
The AN/SPS-73 is a short-range, two-dimensional, surface-search/navigation radar system that provides contact range and bearing information. The tech refresh will improve signal processing and automatic target detection capabilities.
